The Pushcart Prize Nomination Process
We welcome up to six nominations (print or online) from little magazine and small book press editors throughout the world. We also accept nominations from our staff of distinguished Contributing Editors. The nominations may be any combination of poetry, short stories, essays, memoirs or stand-alone excerpts from novels. We welcome translations, reprints and both traditional and experimental writing.
Nominations are accepted between October 1 - December 1 (postmarked) for next year's Pushcart edition. We do not accept nominations via email. Please send one copy of each work. Please do not send entire books or journals. No nominations can be returned.
Nominations must have been published (or scheduled to be published) in the current calendar year. Mail to Pushcart Press, P.O. Box 380, Wainscott, NY 11975. Phone: 631.324.9300.
There is no entry fee and no form to fill out.
